NCAA Game Summary - Drake at Southern Illinois



(Wednesday, January 22nd)

Final Score: Drake 57, Southern Illinois 54

Carbondale, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Aaron Hawley led all scorers with 19 points and drained the game-winning bucket in the final minute to lift the Drake Bulldogs to a 57-54 victory over the Southern Illinois Salukis in a Missouri Valley Conference bout at SIU Arena.

Richard Carter poured in 12 points for Drake (11-8, 2-5 MVC), which snapped a five-game losing streak.

Desmar Jackson tallied 15 points and six steals for SIU (6-14, 2-5 MVC). Tyler Smithpeters and Sean O'Brien both scored 12 points, with O'Brien adding 11 rebounds to his performance.

Drake controlled the first half, taking a 32-23 lead into the break after shooting 47.4 percent from the field. SIU made just 33.3 percent of its field goal tries in the opening 20 minutes.

The Bulldogs extended their lead to as many as 13 midway through the second half, but the Salukis would not go quietly, climbing all the way back to tie the game at 52 with under a minute to play. Drake converted the game-winner on its next possession, however, when Hawley drilled a 3-pointer with 40 seconds left. SIU had a chance to tie the game in the waning seconds but Dawson Verhines' 3-pointer did not fall.

Drake drained 19-of-23 from the free-throw line on the evening, while SIU was a dreadful 12-of-28. The Bulldogs also outscored the Salukis from beyond the arc, 24-12.
